Novak Djokovic: I expect Alexander Zverev to be better than in Shanghai

Novak Djokovic felt confident after his straight-set win over John Isner at the ATP Finals in London on Monday. In press conference, the Serb clarified he was doing well both in tennis and in other aspects. 'I'm not too exhausted.

I'm feeling fit physically and mentally,' Djokovic said. 'I'm looking forward to that match. Obviously good thing about this tournament is that you have days in between matches, and you're guaranteed to play three matches in the group.

I obviously put myself in a very good position with the group with a straight-sets win. Obviously playing Zverev, who also had a straight-sets win today, I look forward to that. It should be a great match. We I think played against each other only twice.

We split wins. I played him recently in Shanghai, but wasn't at his best. I expect him to play better than he did in Shanghai in two days.' Asked if he thought some players were treated better or given more significance than other players, Djokovic replied: 'I understand.

But in a way we have to be more specific. If we're talking about general, so to say, advantage of some players over another, I mean, in a way it's expected that the tournament treats top players, their top stars, as players that they want to have kind of feel the best.

At the same time, in terms of the scheduling, those kind of important things, everyone is even because it has to go through the filter of ATP, not just the tournament itself. I mean, yeah, I hope you're happy with that answer.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
